The Port of Everett is more than just a hub for business and industry – in fact more than 50 percent of the Port is dedicated to public access, recreation and the environment. When it comes to water recreation, the Port of Everett offers boating, kiteboarding and fishing. You can of course moor at the Port, but they also have a boat launch for day users. There are 13 lanes, half for launching and half for retrieval. Launching from here, you have the best of the Puget Sound ahead of your boat, including the San Juan Islands.
Fishermen will be in heaven at the Port of Everett, home to the West Coast’s largest salmon derby, the annual Everett Coho Derby. You can launch your boat or fish off Jetty Landing on the Snohomish River. Crabbing is also popular at this location. You can also catch the free ferry over to Jetty Island.
Jetty Island is home to the longest sandy beach on the Puget Sound, making it great place for beach goers, and it’s known for its warm shallow waters that are perfect for swimming. It’s also a popular spot for kiteboarding.
When you are exhausted from recreation, you can sit back and watch the wildlife on Jetty Island (home to more than 45 species of birds), seals and even gray whales during spring migration. The Union Slough at the Snohomish Estuary and the Waterfront parks in the Port also are great for watching wildlife.
